Ogunquit Beach translates from the Abenaki language as "beautiful place by the sea." It is an apt name for the resort that offers sandy beaches framed by cliffs along the water. Swimmers will want to head to the river lagoon with a sandbar that indicates shallow water ideal for wading and swimming. The area is known for being a lesbian-, gay-, bisexual-, and transgender-friendly community. Consider browsing the boutiques near the water and enjoying refreshments with a view over the beach.

  • Great beach to walk on. It was cold and windy but perfect place to look for shells. Plenty of parking and restaurants nearby  more »
  • If you just like to walk the beach, maybe with your feet in the water, time your visit to low tide. The water recedes to reveal an expanse of beach that extends quite far out into what otherwise is.....  more »
  • So much room, so much awesome sand and great waves! I go every chance I get! Walk the Marginal Way, run the beach, play in the changing tide, lollygag in the river basin portion. Nothing quite like...  more »

  • Incredible view. You come for that tranquil spot by the water. We went on the busiest Labor Day weekend and it was wonderful to eat food by the water despite the crazy rush of people. Ordered seafood platter and it was perfect, lightly breaded and fried perfectly without it tasting greasy and heavy. But it came with store bought chips. The chowders were average. High price food due to the view.
  • My third attempt to get seated.. Beautiful place. Help could be better at service...love the views.. I have been there before. Food was good, service was good...this year I will have to reevaluate....
  • Had to wait a while for a seat and service. The food seemed simple. But it turned out to be extremely tasty! The cream sauce on the mussels was perfect. Quality of the scallops was A+.
  • My husband and I had our best meals ever! And we were seated in the “corner” with 180 degree views of the beach. We’ll definitely be back!!
  • Nice spot on the water. Delicious lobster rolls.good service. We've been coming here since it opened. Consistently good.
